Thousand Oaks City Council Member Tom Glancy Loses Battle With Rare Cancer

May 25, 2012

Tom Glancy, an active League member and long-time city council member for Thousand Oaks, passed away last Friday, May 18 after a battle with a rare form of cancer. He was 71.


Glancy was appointed to the city council in 2005 and elected to a full term in 2008. He also served as mayor in 2009. Glancy resigned from the council on May 11 citing the need to focus on his health and family.

Glancy served as second vice-president for the League of California Cities’ Channel Counties Division in addition to chair of the 2012 Transportation, Communications and Public Works Policy Committee. He also served on two National League of Cities steering committees, the Ventura County Transportation Commission and the Economic Development Collaborative-Ventura County, among other organizations.

Before his appointment to the council, Glancy served as Captain in the United States Navy, retiring after 30 years of service. He also ran a highly successful local dental practice.

In a brief statement reflecting on her husband's passing, Karen Glancy said: "Tom passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family. He was a remarkable man in every way."

A public celebration of life service will be held on Saturday, June 2 at 3 p.m. at the Los Robles Golf Course, Banquet Room, 229 S. Moorpark Road, Thousand Oaks.
